I. BIBLIOGRAPHIC HISTORY OF THE SU WEN
1
While the Su wen and the Ling shu, since their first appearances in bibliographic references, have been transmitted through the centuries in more or less restructured versions, a third text belonging to this group, the Tai su, was lost in China, possibly during the later Song dynasty.
